Latin Culture and Education

The Latin Recording Academy draws its membership from music professionals from Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking communities worldwide. Through its efforts, the Latin Academy works to strengthen these communities through networking opportunities and educational outreach. The Latin Grammy Awards were the first prime-time English-, Spanish-, and Portuguese-language telecast on U.S. television.

The Latin Recording Academy has produced educational outreach programs in Buenos Aires, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Santo Domingo, San Juan, Bogota, São Paulo and in the U.S. in Miami, Chicago, Los Angeles, Dallas, Houston, New York and San Antonio. The Latin Academy has also produced the e-Latin GRAMMY Carreras Y Música events. These events provide educational outreach to more than 10,000 high school age participants from at least 11 countries. The Latin Academy's programs provide interested students the opportunity, using interactive satellite technology, to discuss with musicians and members of the music industry what it is like to work in the business and what it takes to be successful in the field.

The Latin Grammy Awards were originally broadcast by CBS and after 2005 they switched to Univision, the largest U.S. Hispanic Network. They have earned respect and they are already executing the steps towards the 13th Annual Latin Grammy Awards Ceremony. The Latin Grammy Week includes the Special Awards Tribute (Lifetime Achievement Awards and the Trustees Awards), the Person of the Year Gala, the Pre-Telecast simulcast event, the Latin Grammy Telecast ceremony, the Official After Party and several other concerts aiming to promote the different genres of music. The Latin Grammy Awards have taken place in New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Houston and Miami. The Latin Grammy Week closes a cycle of music celebration formed basically by the Latin Grammy Street Parties (1.5 Million people have attended) and the Latin Grammy Intimate Concerts.

Famous quotes containing the words education, latin and/or culture:

    Man is endogenous, and education is his unfolding. The aid we have from others is mechanical, compared with the discoveries of nature in us. What is thus learned is delightful in the doing, and the effect remains.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    To write or even speak English is not a science but an art. There are no reliable words.... Whoever writes English is involved in a struggle that never lets up even for a sentence. He is struggling against vagueness, against obscurity, against the lure of the decorative adjective, against the encroachment of Latin and Greek, and, above all, against the worn-out phrases and dead metaphors with which the language is cluttered up.
    George Orwell (1903–1950)

    What culture lacks is the taste for anonymous, innumerable germination. Culture is smitten with counting and measuring; it feels out of place and uncomfortable with the innumerable; its efforts tend, on the contrary, to limit the numbers in all domains; it tries to count on its fingers.
    Jean Dubuffet (1901–1985)
